The United Nations Security Council Chamber - Iconic Design of International Affairs

AIA CES: 1.5 LU

When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM WEDNESDAY, MAY 15

Where: At The Center   


Join us for a panel discussion about the UN Security Council Chamber’s architectural, artistic and political history.

Designed by Arnstein Arneberg in 1952 as a gift from Norway to the United Nations – then lead by the UN’s first Secretary-General, the Norwegian Trygve Lie – the UN Security Council Chamber inspires efforts toward international peace and understanding.

On April 16, 2013, after a three-year renovation process, the Chamber was re-opened by the UN Secretary-General, H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon and the Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs, H. E. Mr. Espen Barth Eide.

A custom drink inspired by power and architecture will be created especially for the occasion by bartender Toby Cecchini.

Speakers:
H.E. Ambassador Geir O. Pedersen, Permanent Representative of Norway to the United Nations
Loraine Sievers, Former Chief, Security Council Secretariat Branch, Department of Political Affairs, United Nations
Kathy Farbod, Project Architect/Manager, United Nations Capital Master Plan
Jorge Otero-Pailos, Associate Professor of Historic Preservation, Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation, Columbia University, and Founder and Editor, Future Anterior
